CLEVELAND, OHIO — A group of armed thugs had the tables turned while they attempted to rob a MetroPCS store, when the store employee they were trying to rob grabbed the gun from one of the robbers.
The men walked in and asked how much a hoverboard on display cost, police said.
An employee behind the counter told them the device cost $800, and one of the men pulled a gun and said “give me everything you got,” according to police.
That’s when the employee quickly reached over and grabbed the gun, snatching it from the man and pointing it in their direction. As you can imagine, this sent the three thugs running for safety.
Hopefully, this employee will look down the road of self-defense and get himself a firearm in case something like this were to happen again. Relying on the bad guy’s gun isn’t the best solution, but in this case it worked out.
As for the thugs, what a bunch of wimps. If you’re going to play ‘hardened criminal’, you look like a ***** when you run from your own gun. Just sayin’.
